Struggling to think of something for World Book Day? Here's a quick make you can do easily - a dream jar from the BFG! You only need a few simple things to create this make, and either find a waistcoat and trousers to transform into the BFG himself, or fashion a simple dress from a pillowcase to go as Sophie.

How to make

Step 1 

Open your mason jar, and fill a third full with water. Add a small amount of one colour of ready mixed paint.

Step 2 

Stir until the paint is mixed in fully.

Step 3 

Fluff up your cotton wool or toy stuffing a bit, then put it into the jar.

Step 4 

Top up with a little more water so you have about two thirds of the jar full.

Step 5 

Shake some glitter into your jar – you will need about a teaspoon or so.

Step 6 

Top up your jar with another colour of paint – I chose pink.

Step 7

Do not stir – let it swirl around but do not mix the colours.

Step 8 

Finally, top up with your third, darkest, colour. Screw the lid on tightly, and you’re ready to go!
